Excerpt from Alicia by Dahlia
Donovan:

“Such a naughty, teasing kitten.” Josh resisted the temptation to allow his hands to drift from her hips to grip her arse firmly.  He sensed Alicia wasn’t quite ready for anything other than a little lark to lift the oppressive sadness which lingered under the surface. 

“Going to play tour guide for me since the others have swanned off to entertain the whinging bint?”

“Sure.” Alicia eased into a pair of heels no one should’ve been able to walk in and smirked over at him. “Done looking at my arse?”

“Not a bloody chance.” Josh trailed behind her, making sure the balcony doors were locked and the cameras working before securing the front door to the suite. “You can never get enough of a beautiful piece of art.”

“Art?” Alicia’s laugh was like a sweet melody which resonated deeply in his soul and his
groin.  Her gaze flitted down his front to the bulge in his trousers. “Honestly? How do you men walk around with it swinging out of control?”

“Who says it’s out of control?” Josh guided her down the stairs toward the lobby.



BOOK REVIEW
4 STARS

This suspenseful read kept my interest throughout. Alicia’s background and the culture were totally foreign to me.  That added to the allure of the story and stretched my imagination.  I liked the chemistry between Josh and Alicia. Stalked by multiple enemies, Alicia and her friends were almost constantly in danger.  The locations shifted frequently as Josh fought to keep Alicia safe from those who sought to harm her.  I loved the dialogues and the fresh narrative that kept me glued to the action.  Enjoyable reading and I will be looking for more books by Dahlia Donovan in the near future.

I received this book via Kindle Unlimited.
